Geophysics Alum Chloe Gustafson (now a postdoctoral researcher at Scripps Institution of Oceanography) is the lead researcher on a team that recently discovered a vast water system under the Antarctic ice. The team, which includes GP Assistant Professor Matthew Siegfried, used magnetotellurics to harness natural variations in Earth’s electromagnetic field to explore subglacial water features. Their findings hold implications for how models of ice movement and melt are built, providing better insight into the potential impacts of climate change.
